[video clip] >> we have already cut undersecretary gates. we are on track to cut another $487 billion out of defense. now you lay on top of that these enormous reductions as well. by the way, defense is 19% of the overall discretionary budget. defense is taking 50% of the cuts. if we do not believe our military leaders, who do we believe? i think what we're doing now to the men and women serving is unconscionable because they deserve a predictable life in the military. these federal employees do not know when they will be laid off or not. not to mention the contractors. host: john mccain says enough is enough at defense. guest: that has been the message consistently. robert gates laid out these cuts. his successor, leon panetta, has been against these cuts from minute one. he has been one of the few people in washington since the day the super committee failed was saying we cannot have further cuts to defense. host: w

people or in a dumb way. senators like john mccain had similar statements. you're a republican governor along with governors around the country said they want congress to stop the sequesters to stop the cuts. but i just have to be honest. there are too many republicans in congress right now who comprise an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes especially the tax breaks. that's what is holding things up right now. keep in mind nobody is asking them to raise income tax rates. we are asking them to consider closing tax law school hope and -- loophole and deductions that the speaker was willing to do. he said there was a bunch of loophole and deduction you can close. you can raise $800 billion by closing loopholes. we're not even asking for that much. all we're asking is that they close loopholes for the well off and the well -- for hedge fund managers for oil companies or corporate jet owners. who are doing very well and don't need the tax loophole so we can avoid laying off workers or kicking the can downtown road or reducing financial aid for college students. i don't think it's to
